Growing Calendar for Carrot Seeds - Marion F1 Hybrid
Delivery: 5-7 working days
Carrot 'Marion' F1 Hybrid is a Nantes type carrot with a long sowing period making it suitable for all year harvesting. You need never buy another carrot from the supermarket again – think of those savings make as prices go up and up at the shops.
Royal Horticultural Society award-winning Marion seeds produce blunt tipped roots which are exceptionally tender and have a superb, sweet flavour. This variety has a good colour which does not turn green at the shoulder.
Carrots prefer an open sight with light, stone-free soil and are ideally suited to growing in raised beds. We recommend you grow carrots in soil that has not been manured in the last 12 months.
The All Year Round Carrot
SOW INDOORS - September-October thinly ½in (1cm) deep in shallow pre-watered drills. Keep soil moist at all times.
SOW OUTDOORS - February-August thinly ½in (1cm) deep in shallow pre-watered drills, in soil that hasn''t been manured in the last 12 months. Keep soil moist at all times. (Protect early sowings with cloche or fleece).
THIN OUT - 2-3in (5-8cm) apart. Avoid crushing the leaves as the scent attracts carrot root fly.
TIP - Suitable for all year growing. Surround the carrot bed with a barrier of polythene or fleece at least 60cm high to keep low flying carrot root fly from your crop.
